Monique Samuels Talks Surviving Her First Season on RHOP!

 She Survived!

Monique Samuels stepped onto The Real Housewives of Potomac this season and REALLY spiced things up! We fell in love with Monique the moment she stepped foot on our screens and have really enjoyed watching her storyline unfold throughout the season. With the season finale airing this Sunday, Monique is spilling all the tea to aol.com on her first season as a housewife. What did Monique have to say? Read on to find out!

Monique Samuels Talks First Season of RHOP!

Monique is naturally a very big and fun personality, so she is a natural fit with the fun and over-the-top ladies of Potomac. “The thing I love about this is that I’m being me — I’m being who I am, which makes it so I don’t have to put too much energy into it“, she told AOL. “It’s been a fun ride, and I’m enjoying it. I come from a family that loves to laugh and make light of everything. So, you’re paying me to clown people and be shady and all of that? This is right up my alley!

Monique was a little nervous about what fans of the show would think of her, but she decided to just be herself and not worry about things out of her control. Even throughout her feud with Gizelle and her rough relationship with her Mother-In-Law, fans have really loved Monique’s sparkling personality and her realness!

Regarding her rough start with Gizelle, Monique claims that her newbie status might have had something to do with it. “I definitely think because I was a newcomer, that was an issue, and because I was Charrisse‘s friend, that was an issue. But, then, it seems like the more that she learned about the things I have and who I was married to, she [became more] focused on that, I think that’s because that’s what she wants and what she’s been looking for. What shocked me was when she started mentioning my houses and my cars — I didn’t even know how she knew about what cars we had!

Even after all of the craziness from the season, Monique has made life-long friendships with some of her co-stars and would definitely love to return for another round! Monique wrapped by saying, “I would definitely do it again! As long as it doesn’t interfere with my marriage or my kids.”

We absolutely adore Monique and can’t wait to see her continue to BRING IT on the season finale AND the reunion… and hopefully another season!

Tell us- what do you think of Monique and do you think she should return for another season?
